Thanks once more to David McClure for sending in photos he took at DeKorte this past Sunday and today. Here we have some great-looking Goldfinches!
Great photo by David McClure, who captured this pair of Monarchs who may be ready to mate! Taken at DeKorte this past Sunday.
According to NJSEA naturalist Aleshanee Mooney:
Mating monarchs could stay connected all day, even when one of them flies around. The male is the one with its wings spread out. You can see the pheromone glands on the male’s bottom wings.
Dennis Cheeseman was at DeKorte Park early this morning and sent these photos. A great way to start the day. Thanks Dennis!
